Could i use the same login credentials to connect with Sierra Charts or I will required additional id?

You can use the same CQG credentials. Refer to the following information for how to setup your Sierra Chart to connect to your CQG account:
CQG Trading Platform Service: Setup Instructions

Keep in mind that CQG may have limitations on how many connections there can be at one time.

what is the difference when you say "Did you want to do charting only. Or also do trading?"

This tells us whether you need to be continually connected to your CQG account or if you just need to connect to it once a month in order to verify your non-professional standing for the CME Group data. Refer to the following:
Real-Time Exchange Data Feeds Available From Sierra Chart: Connecting Only Once a Month to Trading Account to Support CME Group Exchange Fees

Additionally, Could I use free historic data and charting before i start using sierra for live trading?

Yes, just keep in mind that we have "Free" real-time data for Forex and CFDs, and we have "Free" Delayed Streaming Data for the CME Group, CFE, EUREX, and NASDAQ TotalView. We highly recommend using our Delayed streaming data while you are getting used to Sierra Chart. The data acts, in all ways, like real-time data, but is delayed by 10-15 minutes (depending on exchange). This allows you to work with Sierra Chart without having to pay for the real-time data.

In addition, if you are not going to be connecting to your trading account and you are using the delayed data, then you can be on one of our "Base" packages. Refer to the following:

For the most reliable, advanced, and zero cost futures order routing, use the Teton service:
